Construction for a new retail and mixed-use development called Emory Point has been developing during the past year along Clifton Road near Emory University and its opening has been anxiously anticipated.
Emory Point complex is now open and features an attractive main street with shops like Strippaggio, carrying artisan oils, vinegars & specialty foods, Fab’rik, and Lizard Thicket, as well as popular local restaurants like Bonefish Grill and Marlowes Tavern.
While not all facilities are open yet, CVS Pharmacy, Jos A. Bank Clothiers and Ann Taylor Loft, plus a dry cleaner are open for business and some 21 shops and restaurants will be available when the project is completed. Limited parking is available along the street with a credit card payment, and free 2-hour parking is available in the present parking deck. There are also plans for an additional parking area when the complex is finished.
Originally envisioned as a major condominium and shopping environment by Cousins Properties, partnering with Gables Residential, the project was delayed due to the economic recession. The residential aspect has been altered to offer leasing options instead of condos. Gables Emory Point is a luxurious apartment development with dozens of available floor plans, an elegant Club House and Business Center.
Located across the street from the Centers for Disease Control and surrounded by Emory University Campus and the Emory Healthcare complexes, Emory Point is within walking distance for employees in the community and easily accessible by Emory’s free shuttle service, the Cliff bus. It should prove a popular lunchtime and evening destination for Emory area neighbors as well.
